Leadership Savannah Graduates get an Up-close look at Tourism in Savannah at its March Program

SAVANNAH—The Leadership Savannah Graduate Program will give a behind the scenes look at Visit Savannah on March 27 at 5 p.m. at the SCAD Musuem of Art and the Savannah History Musuem. Participants will learn about all Visit Savannah does to attract conventions, groups, programs and tourists to our city. Graduates will get to play the role of a meeting planner and be presented with visuals, information and material that will show how and why people bring their meetings and conventions to Savannah. This inside look will show you the process of attracting large groups is competitive, intense and interesting.

Participants in this month’s program will tour the new SCAD Museum of Art. It boasts a range of exhibits, unique architecture and other features that have added immensely to the city’s well-established culture of art.
Located at 601 Turner Boulevard, the SCAD Museum of Art will house the first part of the program and then move to the Savannah History Museum at the Visitors Center. The art museum is hosting a private tour for the group from 5–6 p.m. So, please plan accordingly to have sufficient time to tour the SCAD Museum of Art.

At 6 p.m. there will be a reception at the Savannah History Museum with a presentation by Joe Marinelli, President of Visit Savannah. The History Museum/Visitors Center is at 301 Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, and parking at the Visitors Center is free.

This is the first of three programs scheduled for this year. The next program will be at Savannah State University on May 22. Cost for all three programs is $75. Checks should be made payable to Graduate Leadership Savannah and mailed to P.O. Box 1628, Savannah, GA 31402.
